Where can I begin? Aside from the newish sign announcing that it is a Red Carpet Inn, the complex has been there for a LONG time, and it shows. It appears to have originally been a motel as there are many small cottages in the parking lot and a large motel building at the rear. It appears unkempt and in very serious need of updating. At least some paint. Some of the cottages appear to have people permanently living in them. I counted at least 4 abandoned cars in the lot with broken headlamps, weeds growing up through the wheels and flat tires. We booked the room (#107) a few day prior as we were looking for a place to rest as we needed to be in the next town the next morning. I wanted a "whirlpool" tub to relax in so the "spa" tub was advertised with a king sized bed. The room was a gaudy representation of late 1970's early 1980's decor with a 30" tube TV that got about 11 channels, all static. The room's A/C didn't work so someone placed a tiny window unit in the back of the room. I called it the "little AC that couldn't" There was a king sized bed in there but it was by far the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in. The mattress was very hard and worn out. But the Pièce de résistance was the large, blue, heart shaped "spa tub" in the middle of the suite RIGHT NEXT TO THE BED and surrounded by mirrors. I'm sorry to say but "bad 1980's porno movie set" sprung to mind. Once we saw the room we wanted to leave, but virtually every other place to stay within a reasonable distance was booked as of a few days ago and we were stuck. Honestly we wanted to laugh, There wasn't enough kitsch factor nor was it ironic enough to not be taken seriously. This place, or at least this room looked like it was the only ones available for booking. Much of the rest of the place looked like people were living there. At least I hope so and those weren't stray cats living on the upper balcony. The place just looked like people stopped caring a long time ago. I don't want to imply that it was dirty, it wasn't. It is just in very serious need of an overhaul.

So I'm looking for cheap hotels to stay infill I get my apartment don't have much money to spend so this was ideal... Price was really cheap..but going with a four year old who has asthma really bad I have to check it out first... I go there just right now to check it out he was awkwardly staring opens a room... There is stains n mold literally everywhere no towels remote toilet paper... I just turned around walked away and left not saying a word. It looked like a crime scene covered in mold.... I can't stay here not even if it was free

We've been staying here for the past 1 1/2 yrs while saving for a house. The staff is very friendly and welcomming. Reasonably quiet and clean. Rates are reasonable. The rooms and property are well kept and welcomming. We would reccomend these accomidations. Angelina

I inquired about this place with the power outages. I stayed here in the past, both in the older weekly cottages up front and the newer building (built in approx 1985-90 I was told) in a kitchenette room. This place is supposed to has have been renovated to meet Red Carpet Inn Standards, but still has to same 1980s old room furnishings and furniture of when I stayed there in 2007. , The older mid century cottages in the front part of the property has better sound insulation between the room walls. than the newer building's paper thin walls. in other words when you stay in the older building you can't hear the people in the room next door to you, but in the newer building, I could hear people fighting and the blaring tv in the room next door in the new building. The beautiful green mountain views are non exsistent. The kitchnette and bathroom were from the mid 80s as well as the hot tub tiles. The older cottages (buildings)are run as a seperate entity under their old Colonial Park Motel name. Newer back building with Christmas tree lights is the Red Carpet Inn. Outside apperance of property and peple hanging around there scare people away. Not safe. .

Dont stay here. My license plate was stolen here. Paper thin walls. Poorly constructed ancient building with cheap renovations overly glorified. Formerly colonial park motel but raised rates with chain franchise but still same old place. Dumpy old run down weekly cottages in front scare people away. Never changed my bed. Stay away
